Spring Renewal

     We have a new challenge today at QKR Stampede and our theme is "Anything Goes" but we also have an optional theme of "Flowers" if you want to use it.  My card combines image and sentiment from our sister line of digis, Eureka Stamps.  The image is "Butterfly & Sunflower" and the sentiment is "Long Winter Days."


     Of course, because we're celebrating spring, I had to use my favorite shades of lavender and purple with touches of soft turquoise.  The image is colored with my ProMarkers and I also used one of them to shade and highlight the sentiment.  I cut the sentiment with a rectangle die from QuicKutz and matted it with another rectangle cut, but I distressed the edges of each one before layering them together.

     The image is fussy cut, matted with deep purple CS, and fussy cut again.  I dug through my stash of papers and ribbons until I found polka dots.  I don't know what it is about polka dots that always makes me smile but I think they worked well on this design.  :-D

     Challenges:
A Perfect Time to Craft
Card Mania
Classic DT Open
Crafts and Me
Crafty Awesomeness
Crafty Gals Corner
Creative Moments
Inky Chicks
Passion for ProMarkers
Word Art Weds.

     I hope you're going to come and play with us this week.  Remember, you can use any images from any company but if you use QKR or Eureka on your entry, it'll be put into a separate draw only for those and that increases your chance of winning by a huge amount !   Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
